As a nonprofit nestled in the heart of Stillwater, Minnesota, we bear the weighty responsibility of spearheading initiatives that reduce our carbon footprint and pave the way for a sustainable future.

showcase community members engaging in eco-friendly activities such as biking, walking, or participating in local green initiatives.

The Biden administration's commitment to slashing emissions in heavy industries aligns seamlessly with our ongoing efforts to foster environmental stewardship within our community. Jeffrey Rissman's illuminating book, "Zero-Carbon Industry," serves as a guiding light, offering insights into the technologies and policies crucial for curbing emissions in sectors like steel, concrete, and chemicals. His expertise mirrors our own endeavors to promote sustainable practices and pave the way for a greener tomorrow.

Through initiatives like the Industrial Demonstrations Program, the Biden administration is empowering companies to embrace cleaner production methods. Take, for instance, Cleveland-Cliffs, a major steel company slated to receive federal support to transition to a hydrogen-based production process. This paradigm shift underscores the transformative potential of innovation in driving environmental progress—a vision we wholeheartedly champion.

By advocating for strategies such as energy efficiency, electrification, and carbon capture, we can significantly reduce our community's carbon footprint while fostering economic growth and technological advancement.

As Sustainable Stillwater MN, we celebrate these milestones as pivotal steps toward realizing our vision of a more sustainable future. By leveraging the Biden administration's funding to bolster our initiatives, we can fortify our community's resilience and lead by example in the fight against climate change.

As we navigate this journey towards sustainability, let us remain steadfast in our commitment to building a brighter, cleaner, and more livable Stillwater, Minnesota, for generations to come.
